In addition, experience with Zemax or equivalent optical design software, lasers, and modeling of atmospheric phenomenon is a plus. Preferred qualifications include a Masters or Ph.D. in physics or engineering or commensurate experience.
Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) is an advanced engineering and products company that provides innovative sensing, intelligent systems, and software solutions for space, air, and earth-bound applications. Our roots are in developing atmospheric measurement systems for aerospace customers, but we also apply these same technologies and expertise to solving problems closer to home, including clean energy, water management, and early-stage disease detection. Michigan Aerospace is part of the SpringmatterTM commercialization umbrella, providing assistance to innovators and companies that need a little help bringing their concepts to life. The theme of Springmatter is to “Start Something Meaningful.” Fittingly, we established the Springmatter Fund to be intentional about our philanthropy as well. Especially meaningful to us is support for educational programming and employment opportunities to assist marginalized populations.
